Well, it happened. Donald Trump is officially the president of the United States.

The billionaire businessman took the oath of office during an inauguration ceremony in Washington, D.C. on Friday. It was a historic event his election campaign rival, Hillary Clinton, attended as a visitor.

Clinton, the first female U.S. presidential nominee of a major party, arrived at the Capitol Building venue with her husband, former president Bill Clinton.

The Clintons were waiting for an usher to signal them over to their positions when a CNN camera caught the former First Lady take a deep breath before watching Trump — who called her a “nasty woman” during the raucous election campaign — become the country's 45th president.

Watch the moment at 0:07 in the clip below:

Wearing all white in a nod to women’s suffrage, Clinton was praised for her stoicism.

The former Democratic presidential candidate reiterated that message herself, saying she will continue to support the peaceful transition of power.
